Announcing her diagnosis on Instagram, Ms. Baldwin, 40, said:
‘HI FRIENDS – I’VE TESTED POSITIVE FOR CORONAVIRUS, I AM OKAY. IT CAME ON SUDDENLY YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. CHILLS, ACHES, FEVER.
I’VE BEEN SOCIAL DISTANCING. DOING ALL THE THINGS WE’RE BEING TOLD TO DO. STILL – IT GOT ME.
I’M HEALTHY… NO UNDERLYING CONDITIONS…HONESTLY, I FEEL LIKE ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES. I LOOK FORWARD TO BEING BACK ON TV AND SEEING YOU REAL SOON.
AND SHOUT OUT TO THE DOCTORS AND NURSES WHO ARE DOING THE REAL WORK RIGHT NOW.
